Choose revenue over waste with RUF wood chip briquetting machines  

Discover innovative ways to get more from the byproducts of your operations.

Tired of managing wood waste and leaving money on the floor?

Wood chip waste is a constant byproduct of woodworking and extremely difficult to contain. Loose pieces attract moisture and are difficult to collect—resulting in lost revenue and increased overhead for storage. Briquetting wood chips can both generate revenue and save you the headache of cleanup and storage.

Wood chip briquetting helps your facility stay cleaner while creating new opportunities for revenue

The market for sugarcane bagasse briquettes is growing. They can be reused as fuel to generate power for your facility or sold for use in the production of bioethanol, paper, particleboard, building materials and feedstock. To briquette wood chip waste, materials can have a maximum moisture content of 15 percent and the pieces must be two inches or less in size. Once these standards are met, your company can start making briquettes.

How are wood briquettes made?

Wood briquettes are made of two things: wood and pressure. That’s it. There are no chemicals or additives, making them a natural product.

Step 1

Wood chips are moved to a pre-charging chamber by a screw conveyor.

Step 2

A pre-charger presses the material into the main pressing chamber.

Step 3

The main pressing ram compresses the material into the mold and forms the briquette into its final shape and density.

Step 4

Wood briquettes are pushed out of the machine one at a time.
